Riddle: In the pictures below, do the humans receive the treats, or do their benevolent canine overlords?
Welcome to Duboce Park, where the local businesses acknowledge the importance of dogs to the economy:
This fellow in black has quite a sense of humor. His pet human with the pink hat has just used that blue thing to throw the ball (small white dot in the distance). The dog ignored the ball. And ignored it. And ignored it. Finally, the woman went to fetch it, at which point her benevolent canine overlord with the impish sense of human promptly sprinted to the ball and snatched it away, forcing her to chase him.
A dog with a sense of humor. More anecdotal evidence that domestic canines have minds.
Did you know that dogs like apple cider?
Neither did I.
We grumble and groan. They have fun. So who’s really the intelligent creature?
